Is There a Gentle Way to Process Traumatic Memories?

Neuro-bilateral Processing (NBP)™

Most Gentle, Efficient Way to Process Traumatic Memories

Narcissistic Abuse Awareness and Guidance with Randi Fine

“When a person experiences a highly painful emotional incident, the memory stays in the deeper, subconscious parts of the brain and is crystallized with the emotion experienced at the time. The reactive thoughts and accompanying behavior create disturbances that can turn into limiting beliefs and behavioral patterns.” -Dr. Michiyo Ambrosius

What is Neuro Bi-lateral Processing (NBP)™?

Neuro Bi-lateral Processing (NBP)™ is Dr. Michiyo’s advanced trauma healing technique that engages different areas of the brain to efficiently process traumatic memories. Narcissistic Abuse Expert and Coach Randi Fine is a certified NBP practitioner of this extraordinarily beneficial, non-triggering method.

NBP combines techniques from complex disciplines including yogic breathing, visualization, EFT “Tapping”, EMDR, and integrating the different parts of the brain. Dr. Michiyo has been using NBP in practice for the past 8 years to treat trauma and has a 99.9% success rate with her own clients.

Neuro-bilateral Processing Demonstration with Dr. Michiyo

Sometimes, we are all-too aware of the unhealed parts of ourselves related to the pain we experienced, yet other times we may not even fully see how their impact touches every aspect of our lives. NBP breaks through the way our brains store painful memories and enables us to finally process and heal them.

NBP can change behavioral conditioning and limiting beliefs, such as: “I’m inadequate,” “I’m not worthy,” and “I’m not lovable.” Unlike some psychotherapy methods that take weeks or months to facilitate changes, this technique is quick and efficient.

What is trauma?

When people think of PTSD, they most commonly think of soldiers returning from deployment, but everyone experiences trauma.

Trauma is any kind of emotionally charged incident which can include accidents, bullying, abuse of any kind, and loss of something or someone important (loved one, health, large amounts money, jobs, homes, miscarriages, or even pets).

Even if a person is not conscious during the event, it can be a very traumatic experience. Childhood trauma is also very common and can stem from abuse, disturbing events or even overhearing parents argue or fight. Some of the common painful experiences we encounter over the course of our lives are:

  • Auto accident

  • Loss of a loved one

  • Childbirth and surgery

  • Job loss or financial loss

  • Witness to violence

  • A broken relationship

How does trauma affect people?

Trauma and painful experiences happen to all of us.

Traumatic experiences can create emotional “blocks” that prevent growth and development. People can get stuck, develop self-sabotaging behavior and limit their ability to live a happy and successful life.

Trauma experiences are unique because noticeable physical or mental symptoms can appear 10, 20, 30 or 40 years after the original experience occurs.

Trauma can reveal itself as symptoms such as anxiety, depression, or nightmares. Fatigue, lack of focus or drive and general malaise are all common symptoms of unhealed trauma wounds.

Why is healing trauma important?

If gone untreated, trauma can affect the vital functioning part of the brain (the brain stem) and lead to auto-immune system-related diseases like migraines, diabetic conditions, endometriosis, and a variety of different illnesses including cancer and dementia.

Most people do not connect the symptoms they are experiencing to their trauma; therefore, they seek treatments from medical doctors for their symptoms. After exhausting all other options, they may be advised to seek the help of a practitioner who has solid training in trauma healing.

As you can see in the brain scan below, these emotions affect your body, which is a clear indication of why they show up as so many illnesses, both physically and mentally.

The blue and black areas indicate low brain activity, clearly indicating that trauma experiences can change our brain structures.

Many people tend to live with these difficulties by suppressing, ignoring, or self-medicating with drugs, alcohol, and other forms of addiction such as pornography watching, gambling, or computer games.

In many cases, people living with these difficulties feel as though this is a normal state of being or simply do not know how they can resolve their difficulties. Therefore, a lot of people are living their lives at less than their full potential, less vitality, less enjoyment, and less happiness.

Three Tiers of Symptoms

Painful emotional experiences or traumas can show up in the form of physical or mental difficulties. These symptoms have been categorized into three tiers to help you understand how Neuro Bi-lateral Processing (NBP)™ is utilized based on different severities of symptoms.


This tier categorizes lower degrees of PTSD/trauma. A client showing these symptoms would make a good candidate for the introduction of NBP by a life coach.

  • Limiting beliefs

  • Thoughts like “I’m not good enough, I’m not worthy, I’m not confident”, or loss of sense of who they are

  • Headaches (including migraine headaches)

  • Loss of appetite

  • Decreased energy

  • Decreased motivation, ambition, or drive

  • Decreased self esteem

  • Weight loss or gain

  • Procrastination

  • Emotional overwhelm

  • Irritability

  • Relationship troubles

  • Difficulty Concentrating

  • Forgetfulness

  • Overwhelm

  • Difficulty waking up in the morning

  • Fearfulness

  • Sadness

Medium This tier categorizes medium degrees of PTSD/trauma. A client showing these symptoms would make a good candidate for the introduction of NBP by a life coach.
  • Chronic pain

  • Sleep disturbances, insomnia, or nightmares/flashbacks

  • Moderate depression

  • Moderate anxiety

  • Numbing

  • Substance use/abuse

  • Shame

  • Guilt

  • No memory

  • Mistrust

Heavy This tier categorizes heavy degrees of PTSD/trauma. Clients experiencing these symptoms need to seek treatment from a licensed therapist or psychiatrist.
  • Severe depression

  • Severe anxiety

  • Suicidal thoughts

  • Symptoms resulting from sexual abuse or assault

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

  • Phobias

How Does NBP Work?

NBP incorporates yogic breathing, visualization, EFT “Tapping”, and EMDR so that the client can relax and be brought down to the subconscious level.

Normally, our memories are resolved by the involvement of both the right and left sides of our brain. However, the memories of highly emotional situations (trauma) get “stuck” in limbic part of the right-side brain (which controls emotions and survival responses and remain subconscious) and they don’t get the benefit of the left-brain’s rational and logical processing functions.

Neuro Bi-lateral Processing (NBP)™ stimulates the different parts of the brain and allows the disturbing, subconscious memory to be processed, and it is finally resolved rationally.
